There’s a smell of freedom in the air


I have been busy all day, buying gifts for the grandkids, out there helping the economy, which for some reason is turning into weekly weekend chore.

Anyway it suddenly struck me that there was a something distinctly different today in the way people are interacting.

Canadians for some reason still believe that it is impolite to talk about politics in public, so no one was running around yelling Coalition, Coalition, Sign Up Now! Sign Up Now!

But I tell you there certainly was a feeling that something big was coming.

People were holding the doors open for each other, smiling, comparing purchases, talking about how they are cutting back this year because of recession.

And no one, not one single person seemed worried that the Harper government is about to fall.

Wow so this is what change and hope feels like.

Coalition now, sign the petition, we need to spread this feeling.

Check it out:

Support has been climbing throughout the day and the Free Press tends to attract quite a few right wingers. This is good.

Harper is on the defensive and needs to stay that way. I just hope the NDP and Layton don't fall for the tape (unethical, illegal, irrelevant or whatever) bait that the CPC tried to set today.

6277 people responded, that does seem impressive.

You are right about tape BS.

There's one objective here get a government in place that will help the country prepare for what;'s coming at us.

I have never seen so much advanced warning about a recession/depression and on such a major world wide scale and Harper just fiddled around.

We've all lost confidence in his government.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
